Obsessed With Distress Oxides- CDD Creative Challenge

Hello there!
Happy you stopped by for today's post....
Image may contain: text
I will be showcasing the set Leafy Background

You can do pretty much anything with this stamp!!!!
One of my favorite craft must haves is coordinating paper!!!
If I don't have any on hand....color some up with distress oxide ink!!!
First Card

1.Select your color cardstock.  I chose light pink.
2. I die cut two tags and set them aside.
3. Than I heat embossed the leafy background stamp onto the colored cardstock.
5. Select your ink. I chose worn lipstick distress oxide ink.
6. Ink up the embossed cardstock. 
7. Use a die to cut any shape.
Finish the card: I added some splatters of gold paint, added my sentiment, adhered my tags with a twine bow, and scattered some sequins.
Tip: I made sure to fade the ink on the top and bottom for an ombre effect.

Card Two
Same technique, same steps.
I used peeled paint distress oxide ink.
Tip: Always test the ink on cardstock first to see if you like the desired color. 
Have fun mixing and matching cardstock and ink...the possibilities
are endless!!!

Card Three
This is a very popular tecknique. Choose two complimenting distress oxide inks.
Heat emboss the image.
Ink up the top and bottom portions of the embossed paper. 
Keep it darker at the edges and lighter toward the center.
I added s few splatters of white paint and 
finished my card off with sentiments, gold thread and sequins.

Card Four
I heat embossed this card onto watercolor cardstock.
Lightly wet the cardstock.
Add my distress oxides with a paintbrush and some water.
I used colors: peacock feathers, picked raspberry, and carved pumpkin.
I trimmed up the bottom part of the watercolored leaves so they 
appear cascading.
Tip: Deposit saturated color at the base of the leaf... add very little water to the brush and pull the 
color to the tip of the leaf. 

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
Hope you give any of these techniques a try and don't forget to show us!!!!!
